Step by Step

Just an hour's drive from Las Vegas is the Valley of Fire, a natural park famous for the red rocks and trails that criss-cross this lunar landscape. An air-conditioned vehicle will pick you up from your Las Vegas hotel and take you to the desert. An expert guide will be at your disposal at all times during the tour and you will finish the tour with a snack.

Before finalising your booking, you can choose between three routes: easy (4 hours of walking), moderate (between 4.5 and 5 hours) and difficult (between 5.5 and 6 hours). This last option is only recommended for more experienced hikers.

The trails touch different paths and one of the most famous is the Fire Wave. It is located in a secluded area and is recognisable by its characteristic bowl-shaped depression and sandstone rocks decorated with natural veins.

Another must-see is Mouse's Tank, a natural basin that collects rainwater. It' s uniquely named after a Paiute Indian, Little Mouse, who hid in these rock slabs after being accused of killing two gold prospectors.

During your hike, you'll also pass the foot of Elephant Rock, whose silhouette is reminiscent of a pachyderm. Last but not least is the White Domes trail, with its smooth white rock walls.

Although it is a desert, water meanders through the arid landscape. This is the case with Moapa Creek (home to an Indian reservation) and Lake Mead, a large reservoir created after the construction of the Hoover Dam.

    If you want to do this activity, I recommend hiring this type of service, since doing it on your own is not so easy. The team made it look easy and we had a great time.

    There is no doubt that this was one of my favorite activities in Las Vegas. In fact you must take a tour to this area.

    We were a smaller group than I thought so it felt very exclusive.
